Hi Thomas,
Just a note in case you need to compile from source. jzip uses termcap functions for I/O, which are in the ncurses library on Linux. A little Makefile editing should be all you need to substitute ncurses for termcap.
The makefile you want is unixio.mak, not cursesio.mak.
Hope this helps,
Zack.

Hi,

Cool. I didn't know about jzip. I'm going to grab it now and try it.

Hi,
Personally, I find jzip a little more speech-friendly than Linux frotz.
Unfortunately, Frotz has a habbit of rereading old text when used with
Speakup, at least in my experience.  jzip doesn't suffer from this
problem.  It is probably available in the package repositories for your
distribution, or if not can be found on the IF Archive and compiled from
source easily enough.
For Tads games, frobtads works very well and doesn't suffer from the same
sorts of repeated text problems.
Hope this helps,
Zack.
